OnePlus X vs OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One specs comparison: which one to settle for?


The OnePlus family of devices just welcomed its third member so far - the fairly compact and predominantly mid-range OnePlus X. True, its specs are mostly run-of-the-mill ones, but the compact size and the curiously-sounding ceramic edition that OnePlus is offering are certainly intriguing.

Design aside, the specs sheet of the OnePlus X is nothing spectacular, but still not too shabby. We have a 5-inch AMOLED display up at the front, a time-tested Snapdragon 801 which is a safe bet for a mid-range phone nowadays, and 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear shooter, microSD card slot, and a 2,525mAh powerbank at the rear. All of this can be yours for as low as $249.

But how does it stack up against the other two offerings that OnePlus has in store? It's rather hard to sum everything up with in a couple of sentences, so we came up with a three-way specs comparison between everything the "never-settling" smartphone maker has created so far.
